Dockerizing python with ssdeep dependency

The official  python docker container does exactly what it should. It automatically copies the requirements.txt  file and your current directory into /usr/src/app. It should then automatically pip install the dependencies from the requirements.txt, before running the actual Dockerfile commands But sometimes python libraries require additional system setups by themselves (one might consider it a pip bug..). For example, working with ssdeep, a […]

Create a registry file “python_276.reg” with the text below and […]
